    Generally speaking, I find floral scents centred on white flowers to be beautiful and feel sentimental around jasmine:

    A La Nuit
    J'Adore L'Or
    Sarrasins
    Batitto d'Ali
    Honour for Her

    Other scents can be awesome, evocative, intellectually challenging, moving etc., but the above to me are 'just' beautiful.

    I also probably wouldn't put any straight-up masculine scents into that camp. Don't know why. I have a slight feeling that this sentiment may be shared with some of you as there are a lot of fragrances mentioned in this thread that are feminine or at least feminine leaning (classic Guerlains, a couple of Malle's, Chanel).

    This thread provides some interesting material for thought. Upon considering it, I realized that the Top 5 most beautiful perfumes I ever smelled are not the same as my Top 5 favorite perfumes. Just as the Top 5 most beautiful people I've ever known are not my Top 5 favorite people.

    A perfume needs to have so much more than beauty to make a real claim on my heart.
